Motherhood marked the beginning of my mental health journey.
From the moment I first started trying to get pregnant, nearly 10 years ago – motherhood has taken a toll on my overall mental health. Miscarriage, hyperemesis gravidarum, precipitous labor, postpartum depression, endometriosis and hysterectomy have all affected my life since becoming a mother.
But all of the darkness and tragedy and trauma led me to a powerful place. Running in Triangles is my life. It’s what I do all day long with three kids, and it’s where I come to escape them. It’s how I reach out to women who have been where I once was. It’s the place where I feel most powerful and free to talk about the things that no one else understands.
